I’m not kidding. Belting isn’t that hard, and there are a lot of teachers who would be out of work if they told you that up front. Don’t let them fool you.
In my many years of coaching, I have had maybe 2 students who took longer than 5 minutes, and they took about 7.
Sure, it’s challenging to master belting. But learning it? Pffft. Watch this. I promise, you’ll get it.
I don’t usually start my singers on belting. I like to wait until they have developed a good body awareness to understand the mechanics of it. I typically start with the “legit” voice. You know, the classical one that nobody seems to like. That one. However, this is an internet video series that you can watch in whatever order you want, so we’re climbing on the bike without training wheels.
